What If?

What if we all simply tried to mind our business?

What if, instead of continually looking at what others can do for me or give to me, we simply just started asking "What can I do for myself?"

What if we exercised the fiscal responsibility to fix our own finances rather than hoping someone else would do it for us?

What if we agreed that sometimes our differences are just to big to be bridged and parting amicably is infinitely better than arguing incessantly?

What if we valued personal responsibility higher than we valued anything else?

What if we sought to live to the edges of our personal possibilities instead of living far beneath them?

What if we simply tried more?

What if?

I'm all for that it means an end to the Multi-Cult Feminist Liberals :)

Honestly Preppy, I think it means a lot more than that. It would mean a whole lot of people would have to grow up and apply the "Live and Let Live" philosophy they espouse to the actual world in situations they do not agree with, not just in the controlled circumstances that benefit their view. It would mean that we could meaningfully discuss ideas and points of view and agree to disagree without calling the other person names.

It calls for a certain sort of maturity our culture seems to have completely abandoned.
